Edward P. Capozzi exclusively handles auto, trucking, NJ Transit, products liability, and other catastrophic personal injury cases. He has represented seriously injured clients in New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Michigan, West Virginia, Florida, Massachusetts, Virginia, and Delaware. Edward is certified by the Supreme Court of New Jersey as a civil trial attorney, a distinction reserved for less than 2% of attorneys. The New Jersey Supreme Court has designated this honor to attorneys who are able to demonstrate sufficient levels of experience, education, knowledge, and skill in civil trial practice.

Known for his fierce cross-examination of medical witnesses and artistic presentations of his cases, Edward lectures across the country on trial techniques and the concept of proximate cause.

Edward is the author of The Domino Theory and The Domino Theory Second Edition, both Trial Guides publications in which he explains proximate cause and shows other attorneys how to successfully present any case to a jury. In his popular YouTube video, “Capozzi Causation Dominos,” Edward demonstrates, step-by-step, how to set up each element from discovery to settlement to opening statement to arguing damages in closing – when you knock down your dominos and demonstrate the inevitable logic of your case.

Edward is an active participant, advocate, and educator in the field of law. He is a published author and lectures nationally on trial techniques and cross-examination of defense medical experts. From 2012-2018, Ed received at least one, and as many as three, of the state’s top 20 verdicts or settlements. In 2018, Edward had one of the top 50 work accident settlements in the United States, according to TopVerdict*. On June 11, 2020, Edward was installed as the 59th President of the New Jersey Association for Justice.
